The Superbowl is almost here, so it's time to start thinking about the new NFL season for your fantasy football league! We plan to launch our 2017 Leagues in mid-February, so you'll be able to upgrade to the new season starting on or around Wednesday, February 15th.
In order to prepare for some changes that we have planned for 2017, our site will be down for about 2 days starting on Monday morning, February 13th. The work should be completed and your league should be back up and running within 48 hours.
We've spent the past year focusing mostly on the back-end architecture side of things, which paved the way for some front-end league changes in 2017 (and beyond) that should make our system easier to use for both commissioners and owners. Here are the highlights of what you can expect to see in 2017 when you upgrade your league to the new fantasy season: •Better User Interface: The most visible change will be in the form of an updated menu system and completely redesigned skins and color schemes, which will result in a much cleaner look and layout for all of the league pages. •Mobile Friendly Site: The entire site will feature a "responsive" design, which means league pages, home page tabs, and menu items will be much more accessible on any browser from your mobile devices (phones and tablets). •Improved Waivers (Player Transactions): The waiver system will be overhauled to make it easier to use and simpler to understand for commissioners and owners. •Increased Security: League pages will be accessible with the HTTPS protocol, and our Developer's API will be updated to require Secure HTTPS access to comply with upcoming requirements from Apple, Chrome and others. •MFL10s: Our popular MFL10s leagues will inherit all of the above enhancements, so the experience for those leagues will be improved as soon as they are opened up for the 2017 season. We also have some new formats planned as well. The target date for opening the MFL10s is within a week after the scheduled downtime is completed.
Keep in mind that these are just the highlights of the major changes and improvements we have planned for the new year. More info and details will be coming in February after the new season is launched.
